RovyVon U8 Ti Carabiner

RovyVon U8 Ti Carabiner

It’s easy to dismiss the carabiner as an accessory that’s more function than form. After all, since its origin as a climbing essential, all it needs to do is have a functioning gate, a useful shape, and if needed, enough strength to bear loads for EDC. But just because it was born out of utility that it can’t be more useful (or appealing) for everyday carry. RovyVon’s U8 carabiner takes the original humble design and dials its fit, finish, and functionality up to 11. With an eye-catching design, tough titanium construction, and room for some extra utility, it’s definitely worth a second hook.

Even if you’ve seen hundreds of carabiners, the U8’s shape and design really catches the eye. Rather than the usual “D” shape, it instead comes with two round areas divided by its gate. The top half is roomier for attaching onto loops and straps, while the lower compartment offers a narrower track to keep attachments more compact. On the other side of the gate a small cutout works as a bottle opener, making the most out of the U8’s space without breaking any of its sleek design lines.

The entire package is made from titanium, giving the carabiner a great balance of high strength and low weight, with the U8 measuring 2.25“ lengthwise and weighing a hair under an ounce. While not designed for extreme load bearing or serious climbing activities, it’s still rated by RovyVon to carry up to 220 pounds (100 kg) of your gear, above and beyond day to day EDC needs. A sandblasted finish completes its look, letting the U8 fit right in with other titanium tools.

A carabiner is just a carabiner, until one comes along that stands out and hooks your attention. Pick up the RovyVon U8 titanium carabiner from Amazon at the link below.

Trending: Burton The Kit Storage Case

Whether you're organizing your essentials to make it easier to move them between bags or need something for extra protection for your gear, packable pouches are an EDC staple. And today for Travel Thursday, Burton's The Kit storage case is climbing the charts. Unlike many packable pouches, The Kit's exterior is compression-molded, giving it a crush-resistant design while protecting its contents from a bit of water damage thanks to its polyester construction. Its 4" x 3" x 1.5" size is small enough to throw into a sling or daypack, with enough room for smaller essentials. You can organize these on the inside thanks to built-in organization, including a hardshell case for even more protection, a floating pouch, and nylon webbing for pens or similar gear.

Rogue Industries Front Pocket Wallet

With all their varied shapes and sizes, sometimes getting all our gear, accessories, and apparel to work well together is an exercise in forcing a square peg down a round hole. Take wallets, for example, where the common rectangular shape is meant to fit a rectangular pocket, and for many pants—especially the front pocket of jeans—the shape doesn’t quite line up. To solve this square wallet, round pocket dilemma, Rogue Industries produced and patented their Front Pocket Wallet. With its unique shape, premium materials, and US-made construction, the wallet provides a sleek and comfortable option for your everyday essentials.

A smooth, rounded edge gives the Rogue Front Pocket its distinct form factor. The design allows the wallet to sit flush against the rounded contour of its namesake, your front pants pocket. The shape, paired with a 0.25“ thickness, gives it a slim and discreet profile, minimizing bulge while maximizing its utility. It’s compact at 5” x 3.4“ and lightweight at only 1.6 ounces, making it a solid EDC option.

You have the option of two designs for your Front Pocket: 6 slots that can hold up to 12 cards, or 3 slots that hold 6 cards along with an ID window on the right panel, with the billfold and stash pocket up top. Either option can be made from your choice of American Bison or Moose Leather. Wallets from the Bison and Moose collections in particular are made in Maine, USA, to boot. Both materials have exceptional durability that will develop a patina unique to its user over time, with the added bonus of RFID protection.

The Rogue Industries Front Pocket Wallet’s thoughtful design, robust fit and finish, and craftsmanship gives you a sound everyday option that solves a common everyday conundrum. Build your perfect Front Pocket Wallet in your choice of style, material, and initial customization at Rogue Industries’ site at the link below, with a special offer of 15% off your order with code EDC15.

AceBeam TK16 High CRI

AceBeam TK16 High CRI

It’s starting to get ridiculous what you can get out of an affordable EDC light. What used to be enthusiast, specialist (meaning expensive) features like rarer metals or good LED tints are now becoming commonplace, offering exceptional combinations of performance and value. Not so long ago a compact, high-CRI, multi-LED flashlight at an affordable price was unheard of. Today, the AceBeam TK16 makes flashlight dreams come true, with solid features, a choice of hardware to suit your needs, and a great price for a light that’s the smallest it can be.

At only 2.61“ long, the TK16 doesn’t take up much space, giving it a compact profile in hand or attached to your pocket or gear. But even with a small footprint it manages to pack plenty of useful features, starting with a triple emitter design (in three configurations) that gives it your choice of power, throw, or in the model featured here, high CRI by way of 3 x Luminus SST-20 LEDs nested in TIR optics for a floody beam. With a rating of 95+ CRI, this means that the TK16 gives one of the most naturally accurate and eye-pleasing beam tints on the market. Its six modes are controlled via a tail electronic switch, including a 1,250-lumen Turbo (on the included 16340 battery, before stepping down) and  the always-useful 0.5-lumen Moonlight mode, both of which have shortcuts for instant access. While the tail is an uncommon place to find an electronic switch which is usually on the side, the good news is it’s in a recessed space so the TK16 can still tailstand for candle operation.

The TK16’s two-piece body is built from anodized aluminum alloy, and screws together in a nice seal thanks to premium anodized square threads and its o-ring. A specific IPX rating isn’t provided, but Acebeam states that the light is capable of resisting 2 meters submerged in water and 1 meter of impact. The body tube features big, chunky knurling for grip, while a detachable gold-plated clip takes care of attached or pocket carry. It’s a light carry at 1.31 ounces without its battery, making it a prime candidate for EDC.

The AceBeam TK16 is the very definition of a flashlight punching above its weight, with plenty of enthusiast features without the associated price tag. Pick up the SST-20 high-CRI version at the link below, where you can also check out the other LED options for sale.
